In order to recognize and celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Cinnaminson Library will be showing the film, The Loving Story, the moving account of Richard and Mildred Loving, who were arrested in 1958 for violating Virginia’s ban on interracial marriage.  Their struggle culminated in a landmark Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia (1967) which overturned anti-miscegenation laws in the United States.  Directed by Nancy Buirski. This event has been made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Gilder Lehman Foundation’s Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle Grant
